My MCPX seems to pulse in and out of low voltage cutoff as soon as I raise the collective above what is required to hover. I have a new motor and new batteries. It could be the board but they cost so much to replace its not worth it for this old heli. Any advice? See video below:

check your solder connections for the battery wires to the main board and also check the plug on the end that goes in to the battery. I had an intermittent power issue like this once and it ended up being the plug had gone bad.
the solder points to the board can get weakened by plugging and unplugging the battery (wire shifting around) and wouldn't be an issue you would think to look at.

I had the exact thing happen with a brand new MCPX-BL. I called Blade tech support and they sent me a new mainboard and it fiixed the problem. If you call their tech support line and wait on hold and explain the problem to them I have found that usually they make good on their customer service and send new parts.
